I make ornate, pottery that has been thrown, altered, pinched and stacked into playful, animated forms. With carved and applied textures, each piece is made from a porcelaineous clay, glazed with multiple colors and fired to cone five in an electric kiln. My work, though not always practical, exudes a certain joy and exuberance inspired in equal parts by Dr. Seuss, Antonio Gaudi, Minoan and Majolica pots and Mother nature at her most extravagant. It is both sculptural and functional.
